You can find the complete list on my website http://www.melindaodonnell.com/#!tidbits--trivia/chhy, but I wanted to share a few here that aren't spoilers.
-Dayek's name was originally Keyad. How...ever I decided that it was too close to Kevan's name and eventually switched it. Dayek and Keyad is a palindrome.
-Coriander is an herb.
-Crescent's name was actually Luné . But between not knowing how to make that little accent, and one of my sisters pronouncing it as loony I decided to make the change to Crescent. And yes, that line in the book was based on real life.
-Tilor had a much larger role, such as joining the journey, but by that point the main character roster had grown quite large. I also had Jeremy basically filling his role as comedy relief and having a similar personality.
-This is the only story I have done an outline for. I work much better freestyle. However, it proved invaluable when I was struggling to make the story longer.
I'm busy working on my blog posts. Watch this space!
